Mage Pocket Spells

Pocket Spells are the bread and butter of magi in the Crescent Lands. These little spells are how the typical low power, inexperienced magi earn their keep and make their money. Pocket Spells are spells which make life easier, simpler, and more pleasant. A mage can cast 5x their health-fitness average of Pocket Spells per day before tiring, and a 1st level mage receives 2 experience points per Pocket Spell up to 25 pt per day, at second level 1 pt per day up to 25 points, and at third level they receive no points for Pocket Spell. A Pocket Spell costs a mage .05 spell points, but even one Pocket Spell will lock .5 spell points from use by a "normal" spell because regular spells work in .5 and 1 spell point increments. Beginning magi can get 3 Pocket Spells for every 1 spell they are willing to forgo. Pocket Spells last for one month unless otherwise specified.

Magi who performs a Pocket Spell to earn money are considered to be inferior magi, Purse Magi as they are frequently called. No powerful, experienced Magi would ever be caught casting a Pocket Spell for money. Since many Pocket Spells would fall within the sphere of responsibilities of the Tinker's Guild, a Purse Magi performing such a Pocket Spell would have to give 10% of the payment to the Tinker's Guild. Any such Pocket Spells are marked with an asterisks.

A Pocket Spell is not cast it is performed.

Mages charge around 1qb for a Pocket Spell, and it cost 1 cp to learn and 2 days at 4 hours per day.
